This amazing Playstation 3 game, Uncharted 2 Among Thieves, by Naughty Dog is slowly, but surely, nearing it’s release date. Yesterday the release information has been revealed. So the release date, box art, and release specials are now buzzing around the internet. I was actually tempted to write this article yesterday, but I decided to save it for today. Uncharted 2 will be arriving to the US on October 13th, and where you preorder your game does actually matter, in this case.
The official box art is to the left, in that thumbnail. A pic of Nathan Drake hanging from that runaway train, as seen in one of the first videos of Uncharted 2 that was released. Pretty actiony and appealing box art, no complaints there. So onto the preorder information. Amazon, Game Crazy, Gamestop and Best Buy will all be having different downloadable exclusives that come with the preorders.
Best Buy’s preorder comes with Golden Barettas and a golden AK-47, that is able to be used in Multiplayer mode for show off purposes. These are exclusive to Best Buy, however, so if you want to be sporting Golden Weapons, then this retailer should be your choice. But remember, while Golden guns may be flashy, they also give off your position quite easily due to it’s shine and oddity. Amazon will be getting an exclusive Uncharted 2 Treasure Map. Which will allow you to discover hidden treasures throughout the game. Game Crazy will get an exclusive Currency Multiplier for multiplayer online use. Which will allow you to get ingame currency quicker and unlock bonuses quicker than your opponents would. Gamestop gives you exclusive first access to the Uncharted 2 Multiplayer demo as well as the “downloadable Revenge Attribute”. The revenge attribute is one of the last boosters you can unlock in the Multiplayer campaign, and with this downloadable content, you’ll be able to unlock it at the start of your Multiplayer Campaign.
These downloads will be available to those who pre-order until the end of the year, so if you plan on doing it, you should. In my opinion, the GameStop and Best Buy downloadable contents are the best ones out of the bunch. No doubt many will go for the golden barrettas and golden ak-47s, but people would probably also wanna get that revenge attribute. I’m guessing that those will be the best. The exclusive multiplayer access will allow you to play the multiplayer beta 2 weeks before it is released to the public.
So there you have it, if you don’t know about this game, go look up on it. This game will most likely be one of the games of the year, it is an amazing game so far, and all Playstation 3 owners who like Action and Adventure games should have this one in their collection some time in the future.
